Sock and I made it safely to Orlando this afternoon. Our flight from Providence to Orlando was 100% full. Kids were everywhere! A little girl in the row ahead of me kept asking her mother when the plane was going to take off, then she asked when they were going to get to Disney World (right after we took off), and finally once we were starting to land she made sure to point out that there were lights on in Florida (yes! there is electricity in Florida in case you are wondering). Needless to say, Sock and I were excited to land. I met up with my parents, ate dinner, and came back to the hotel room. We have wireless internet here!
I worked on Sock at the airport and on the flight. I think I am going to have to get some smaller dpns because I seem to keep my face really close to my knitting and I was afraid I was going to lose an eye during the turbulence.
I am getting close to working on the heel. I keep trying Sock on to see if he is the right fit and I am a little worried. I am a little off my gauge (half a stitch) and the sock is a bit tight but it is not cutting off my circulation tight. I think I am going to work on the heel and try it on again and if it is a no go, I will frog it. Luckily, my swift and winder should come this weekend, so when I get back to Providence, winding the yarn back up won't be such an ordeal. I am so glad I grabbed some Sugar 'n Cream at the last minute. If I don't have a sock by the end of this trip at least I will have a dish cloth. Waste not, want not.
Are you using wool yarn? Try blocking it in the sink tonight (or with an iron set to steam and a damp hand towel, if you have an iron in your room) and see if that doesn't take care of it. It might help!ReplyDelete
